Puerto Rican or Jewish?

September 26, 2009

When I was in High School we were all sort of ignorant about the term ‘blue eyed soul’. We kind of just assumed that anyone who was of a…ahem…lighter complexion and blew up in the r&b world had to be Puerto Rican. The idea of white people with rhythm was still relatively lost on the youth of the day (Of course since then things have changed) Mind you also this was the height of Puerto Rican Popularity. Everyone wanted to be Puerto Rican. Me and my girls went to the Puerto Rican Day Parade (which was a mess of sexual harassment and Big Pun) just to check out the dudes. Apparently everyone had that idea because half the people there were clearly not Puerto Rican (not even Dominican, though girls with ‘good hair’ would try and claim it) Anyways…
Recently I was revisiting some of my jams of the day. And was telling Stefan about how I used to be in love with a Puerto Rican singer named Jon B. I youtubed him and Stefan just laughed. Dude is clearly not Rican. But in my defense, WTF. He is most definitely rocking the ill Beatnuts shape up. Where I was from only Puerto Ricans did that. (see video below)
The other one was KP and Envyi. EVERYONE was talking about how this girl was doing the shit out of ‘the bounce’ (the dance of the day)
Her moves were of course attributed to her being Puerto Rican. Nope. She isn’t. Not at all. Glad I removed the Culture Shades. They were not working well for me apparently.
(side note. Check out old boys jheri curl. thats who you’re trying to kick it to kp? really?)
